Thank you for sharing this. I was looking for a way to do this and wouldn’t have found this solution without your help.
However, I tried this macro for “~/Desktop/%TriggerValue%” so that system Screen Shots would be tidied away, but I have found that the Macro stops my system Screen shots from appearing. Mac OS X 10.11.3. Has anyone else found this?
Works great fro Xscope shots though.

Yes, tiny ⌘⇧4 screenshots are fine, but ⌘⇧3 screenshots or larger ⌘⇧4 screenshots “disappear”.
That’s because they end up as (invisible) dot files in the Screen Shots folder:
It seems that —if the screenshot is large— it gets intercepted while still in a temporary state.
Change the TriggerValue condition to a regex match and it will work.
Yes Tom. I know. But if I had done that, what would I have done for my first ever folder actions & automator.workflow project? If I hadn’t done that first project the earth would have stopped spinning, cars would have run out of gas, the sun would have stopped shinning, and I would not be here in this forum. So do you see now why it was so important for that to be my first educational exercise. LOL!
However when I realized what you had there I scurried my butt over to the download link and snatched it. Nice wrapper.
Now, so what is the deal with the html prompts you and @JMichaelTX discuss in this thread?
